Military better suited to boost medical facilities, not enforce MCO - Kit Siang


CORONAVIRUS | Military involvement in the fight against Covid-19 would be better placed to boost medical facilities and other capabilities, instead of “patrolling purposes”, opposition MP Lim Kit Siang said.

He said the armed forces, which will be deployed nationwide tomorrow to help police enforce the two-week movement control order (MCO), could instead utilise its engineering, medical and other units to prepare military hospitals or temporary structures for use.
